Tourism destinations



This cosy town is located in the Goierri region in the historical territory of Gipuzkoa. Gaintza, surrounded by Aralar Mountain range, presents a fascinating landscape. The church of San Miguel stands out in the urban area and the rest of the constructions built around it. The beautiful church was built in the 16th century and has a Renaissance-style facade.


Excellent views of the surroundings

If we decide to go for a walk in the surroundings, we should visit the hermitage of San Martín on the outskirts of the urban area, the town church in the past. This site offers a spectacular view of Mount Aralar and the summit of Ausa-Gaztelu Mountain (904 m).


In addition to this, on San Martin's Day, November 11th, this gorgeous place celebrates a "romeria" (local country fiesta connected to sanctuaries and hermitages) near the hermitage of San Martín that attracts many people.
